Orhan Pamuk anneals in this masterful, disquieting novel. An exiled

pursued by figures ranging from Ipek's ex-husband to a charismatic
terrorist. A lost gift returns with ecstatic suddenness. A
theatrical evening climaxes in a massacre. And finding god may be

humming with cerebral suspense, "Snow is of immense relevance to
our present moment.
